Golden Paw Society: Shelter+ Challenge Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The grant was used for the veterinary expenses for two of Golden Paw Society's rescues: Ambrose and Moose.
This grant not only directly provided the best possible care for two 'special needs' cats, but by bearing the burden of the unexpected expenses, GPS was able to continue on to rescue 14 more cats from municipal shelters that same month!
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Ambrose is an 11 year old cat with diabetes, rescued from ‘death row’ in a municipal shelter. His insulin and syringes cost us hundreds of dollars monthly. The grant helped us cover the cost of Ambrose’s medical supplies for one month and keep his diabetes regulated.
Moose is a 6 year old cat who was rescued from a municipal shelter and found to have a severe case of Stomatitis, which is a condition of the gums that requires extensive dental surgery. The Shelter+Challenge grant to Golden Paw Society made it possible for GPS to afford the costly surgery to free Moose of his pain and remove all of his teeth, effectively curing his Stomatitis.
